Protect yourself through a VPN

We suggest you protect yourself with a VPN when using Kodi to ensure that your Internet Service Provider or the government isn’t logging your streaming activity. If you aren’t using a VPN or a proxy when accessing free or low-cost media, the government, your Internet Service Provider, hackers, and app developers can log into everything that you do online through your visible IP Address. Most cord-cutters use a proxy or a VPN to hide their Internet activity while streaming live movies, TV shows, and channels. It is essential to use a VPN that is fast because we are interested in streaming large size HD files.  It is also essential to find one that keeps no logs of what the subscribers access while online.

FAQ’s

What can the Kodi fire stick do?

It can do a lot. You can run Kodi with third-party apps, emulators, and browse the web with Firefox, etc.  Just the same about anything that you can do with an Android tablet since that is what the Fire TV Stick is:  an Android tablet without a screen.

Firestick remote does not work; the stick is not receiving the signal?

You can use a FireStick remote app. We have had a good luck with the Wukong Remote app. You install the app on your phone and connect it to your FireStick; then, you can use your phone like it’s your FireStick remote. Also, there is a possibility that the FireStick remote’s battery may also have gone dead. If so, you can push in near the indent and slide out. The battery door should easily slide off.

The Fire Stick can be turned off by easily unplugging it from your TV. Most users put the Fire Stick into sleep mode, from the power options that put the Fire Stick into a low power usage mode, and it can be woken up with a simple press of the remote later.
